The blog has made an achievement of getting 10,000 views in 3 weeks, which is a good target, but you are probably wondering, “How did you get that much in that amount of time?” The answer is simple and it is traffic exchanges.
What is a traffic exchange?
A traffic exchange is a site that lets you put your site in rotation so that other members can view it and you can view other peoples in exchange for gaining credits to advertise more. Now, this is perfect for small businesses who want to try a free or low cost way to gain customers, but bare in mind that they might not be interested as they are also trying to advertise their site as well.
There are over 20,000 to choose from, but I will give you some advice on which ones actually help you to promote effectively and efficiently. The first site is a resource that sends your link to thousands of manual traffic exchanges, as you can put the same website in three times (free members) or five times (gold member- $4.95 per month + 1000 credits per month), it is called explosive traffic.
How does Explosive Traffic Work?
Explosive Traffic earns credits differently, as you have to earn them by promoting your agent link in other traffic exchanges. The agent link will look something like this http://explosivetraffic.net/coop/your-account-name (username for site), as you will gain 0.6 credits for a free member or 1 credit for gold member when your agent link is viewed. On the other hand, you have another option to buy them but for only promoting content the free option is better. This means to gain a lot of credits, you will have to join at least 8-10 traffic exchanges that let you use the same site link lots of times. The site is owned by John Bell, who owns two more traffic exchanges and a mailer, and they let their members transfer credits from his other sites to any others. John Bell owns Traffic-Swirl, FastCashandTraffic and Virallistbuilderplus.
How does Virallistbuilder help?
Viral list builder plus allows members to send emails, where you can view as many as you like, to advertise their site. When you read an email, for 20 seconds, you get between 1-10 credits and between 0-3 reward points and you can save them for good prizes. The amount of credits and reward points you get is random for each mail, but you can transfer credits from this site to any mentioned above or if you save up your reward points you can buy lots of credits or an upgrade for one week.
You can collect reward points quicker by accomplishing tasks, for example read 5000 emails for 1000 reward points or comment on 25 emails to get 250 points, this will help you a lot in the beginning. Although, there are two upgrade options if you want to gain more credits and benefits, they are basic and plus.
Basic (Receive 10-30 Credits per email. Send Emails every 5 days. 500 Free Credits per Month 1,000 Free Emails per mailing.)
Prices: $7 one month, $17 three months or $27 six months (all on subscription for Paypal or Payza)
Plus (Receive 30-50 Credits per email. Send Emails every 2 days. 2,000 Free credits per month 3,000 Free Emails per mailing. Increased open rates! Plus member emails award 1-5 reward points.)
Prices: $17 one month, $47 three month, $87 six month (all on subscription for Paypal or Payza)
What is the best choice?
Promoting requires a lot of dedication and motivation, as depending on if you want to go on the surfing route in traffic exchanges then all what you have to do is just keep on clicking and viewing lots of sites. On the other hand, if you have a big business and can handle the costs then it does not matter if you buy them as the amount of traffic you will get depends on your account level.
